Before the event a lot of people were talking a lot about how the sand section was going to be horrible.

I thought it was the cherry ontop to what was already an amazing track with that long quadding rhythm lane. Which really separated a lot of people. Even the over under into the whoops were great.

Watching Justin Hill leap frog that Suzi every lap catching the leaders was very entertaining even for people who were first time watchers at the house I was at.

I want MORE OF THAT. Are there anymore tracks this year that are setup like that?

I have no clue if they'll use sand at other venue's but I hope they do cause....it made for great racing.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

I hope we got a track with nothing but sand.

I loved it. Thought it added a much needed variable to the race. Wish we could see sand sections more often.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I'm sure the riders hated it because it was easy to make mistakes. That created good racing tho. I liked it.

I thought the sand was awesome but like OP mentioned... that rythym lane with numerous options was bitchin. Not that anyone cares but I'd rather have a rythym lane with tons of options instead of sand, although both are fun to watch

Bring on more sand, it will definitely help Our Guy's get better and faster and prepare them for that big Olympic race, ha. BTW, who was the Sandman last night, or best all around in that section ?

Sand every week, triple crown format, playoff, let's do it

I think Hill looked fastest but ando was certainly the coolest to watch through it

Best track so far this season by a looong shot. Sand section and the rhythm lane before it were simply perfect!

Ferrandis looked like the most consistent 250 guy in the sand. Even though he won, Forkner looked like he had a couple of heart rate raising trips through.

I also agree with Steve and the general, best track so far this season. Hopefully they have the sand handy to bring into Daytona.

Sand good for one section and or a turn, if every turn is huge ruts it's not good for block passing which we love to watch

I loved the sand! I wish they do a turn, long straight, and another turn all sand.

They didn't have enough Sand - it's a rare commodity in Florida.................

I say: make a whole damned track from Sand. It might not be a 'conventional SX' then, but it would be interesting. The "bounce , bounce, bounce , bounce . bounce, bounce, jumpety jump jump" on repeat, as my brother calls SX, could do with some variation to the vicious, glorified BMX tracks that they tend to be.

Surprised no one else is asking this. The original animated picture of the track showed the sand rhythm section but also 2 more sand corners... What gives?

How is it that the tracks can be so bad and others so good? Cant just be the type of dirt and size of location...Somethings weird goes on, im not sure who or where but something got to happen...laughing

More sand. More whoops. Less jumps.

I liked it but understand the riders perspective. Supercross setup are direct opposite of what you need in sand. Very easy to go over the bars if you are some millimetres to far forward on bike.
